ABC Renews Shonda Rhimes' 'Scandal' for Second Season

ABC has renewed freshman drama Scandal for a second season.

The network gave the Kerry Washington-Tony Goldwyn D.C.-set political fixer drama the plum post-Grey's Anatomy time slot where it has performed well in its limited run.

The Shonda Rhimes drama, which bumped the prolific showrunner's Private Practice from its longtime home on Thursday nights, has for the most part held on to its Grey's lead-in viewership. The seven-episode first season has been a format Rhimes has said she enjoys.

"Season 1 feels like a British miniseries in that it's only seven episodes. "It feels more like State of Play than like a regular network show," Rhimes says. "The seven episodes work as a whole; we're telling a story in which there's a little bit of a cliffhanger at the end of every episode. When you leave at the end of the season, while you have a lot of questions that need to be answered, the larger part of the mystery or intrigue that was happening this season is finished."

Well, apparently I'm going to have to start watching this. Especially since nearly everything else I currently watch in the hour long format is getting cancelled.
